There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in the latest drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery and the estimated jackpot for Tuesday’s drawing will grow to $790 million.

One ticket each with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold in Delaware, New Jersey and New York and are each worth $3 million because the player utilized the Megaplier option, where for an additional $1 any non-jackpot prize will be multiplied by the Megaplier number drawn.

The ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, sold in Virginia is worth $1 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game.

The numbers drawn Friday were 14, 40, 60, 64, 66 and the Mega number was 16. The estimated jackpot was $660 million.

The drawing was the 28th since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number are 1 in 302,575,350, according to the California Lottery. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.

The Mega Millions game is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. Virgin Islands.
